a Serva Padrona is a witty opera buffa (comic opera) that stands the test of time. Written by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi in 1733, the brisk 45-minute musical performance tells the comedic story of a maidservant who hoodwinks her boss in order to get the job title that she really wants – wife! The opera is performed by the San Diego Baroque Soloists with guest vocalists/actors.
San Diego Baroque Soloists is a collaborative ensemble that includes violinists Pierre Joubert and Isaac Allen, violist Andrew Waid, cellist Alex Greenbaum, and harpsichordist/organist Alison Luedecke. Each artist is an accomplished soloist in their own right and has performed extensively in San Diego and worldwide, with groups such as the Academy of Ancient Music, Mainly Mozart, Bach Collegium, The Knights, and the Hausmann Quartet. San Diego Baroque Soloists is the only San Diego-based instrumental ensemble featuring period instruments and repertoire.
